Yeah, in command prompt, i do cd C:\Documents and Settings\melksnor\Desktop\Sony\comiclrf
first and then i type

comiclrf.pl "C:\Documents and Settings\melksnor\Desktop\Sony\comiclrf\maus_1.cbz "

it starts coding and then it outputs this:

Converting Comic "maus_1"...
Extracting...
Converting LRS to LRF...
XYP version: 1.0
End.
Processing Complete
LRF written to "C:\Documents and Settings\melksnor\Desktop\Sony\comiclrf\maus_1.
lrf"

but the file is never there, the whole proces happens quite fast btw, like it is done within two minutes

Try putting comiclrf.pl into a directory with no spaces, i.e. c:\utils\comiclrf\

I keep getting an error:

Converting Comic "XXXXXXX"...
Extracting...
The system cannot find the path specified.
Convert failed! at C:\comiclrf\comiclrf.pl line 124.


I'm running Windows XP Pro SP2, ImageMagick-6.3.5-3-Q16 (installed in c:\imagemagick), ActivePerl 5.8.8 (installed in c:\Perl) and comiclrf (installed in c:\comiclrf) trying to convert a file named 326-350.cbr.

Any troubleshooting tips?

Problems?

Anyone run in to an issue with the script only processing the first and last X pages and skipping the rest? I tore apart the CBRs and it turns out the covers and inner art were .jpg, and the meat of the comic was .gif. It looks like comiclrf doesn't know how to handle it. Unfortunately I don't know enough perl to try and fix it myself. Anyone else run in to this issue? Also, how does the output quality of this compare to manga2ebook, run through rasterfarian? I'd prefer a one step script like this, but quality matters quite a bit.

seveng, comiclrf doesn't currently support gif images. It looks to be very easy to add though, I'll have a look.

Updated: Added support for GIF images. Better sorting of images, now uses original archive ordering instead of alphabetical. Cleanup temporary directory before processing images. Download latest from link on first page.

I am getting the same problem as the user above

Is there something we are doing wrong here?

first I change directories into the comiclrf folder. Then I use the command line comiclrf.pl c:\comiclrf\test.cbr

Test.cbr is the name of the comic, c:\comiclrf is the directory where the comiclrf files are.

Thrilled with comiclrf, though I find that I have issues when using wildcards that are solved by copying the comiclrf files into the directory of the cbr/cbzs that I am converting.

Any clues why resizing for landscape mode doesn't work properly? It would be nice to get the resolution right so that we could read some comics in landscape mode--my eyes ain't what they used to.

Thanks again for creating this. It was exactly what I was looking for.

I'm running Windows XP Pro SP2, ImageMagick-6.3.5-3-Q16 (installed in c:\imagemagick), ActivePerl 5.8.8 (installed in c:\Perl) and comiclrf (installed in c:\comiclrf) trying to convert a file named 326-350.cbr.

Any troubleshooting tips?
ComicLRF is configured for ImageMagick-6.3.4-8-Q16 and since you're running ImageMagick-6.3.5-3-Q16, ComicLRF can't find ImageMagick and can't convert any images. I had the same problem but it's easily fixed.
1) In windows explorer, open the comiclrf folder
2) Right-click comiclrf.pl and choose "Edit" to open comiclrf.pl in Notepad
3) In the "User Configurable Area" you'll see: my $convertprog="C:\\Program Files\\ImageMagick-6.3.4-8-Q16.
4) change "my $convertprog="C:\\Program Files\\ImageMagick-6.3.4-8-Q16" to "my $convertprog="C:\\Program Files\\ImageMagick-6.3.5-Q16"(or wherever you have imagemagick installed. ex. "C:\\imagemagick")
5) save changes in notepad.
6)????
7)PROFIT!
(sorry, I couldn't resist not doing that last part )
Hope this is helps.

Updated: Now searches for the ImageMagick convert program, no need to edit the "convertprog" variable now.

Recommend you upgrade to the latest ImageMagick program, v6.3.5, as it has support for multi-cpu processors, doesn't appear to speed up the resizing much though.

banjopicker, I haven't figured out how LRF handles landscape resolutions, I'm not sure it is actually possible as it seems to ignore setting the resolution to anything other than Portrait sizes.
